ATLANTA – The Rev. Martin Luther King Jr.'s children have resolved one of two legal disputes dividing them.
The Estate of Martin Luther King Jr. Inc. on Thursday dismissed a lawsuit it had filed in August 2013 against the Martin Luther King Jr. Center for Nonviolent Social Change.
Dexter Scott King is president and CEO of the estate and Martin Luther King III is chairman of the board. Their sister, Bernice King, is CEO of the King Center.
The estate had filed the lawsuit to ask a judge to stop the King Center from using King's image, likeness and memorabilia.
A lawsuit filed last year by the estate against Bernice over ownership of King's traveling Bible and Nobel Peace Prize is still pending and is set to go to trial next month.
